DescriptionWritten from 18 Duke Street, Westminster, London. The letter expresses Brunel's concern that in the recent cross section drawing of the ship that he has been sent, the cabins have been reduced in size. Brunel explains that he doesn't want to argue over how such a mistake arose, he just wants to know the best height for the best cabins and alter the plans to give the correct height.
